Special Education

In this same line, Of Valle and Villanezo (1993) they clarify that the Hospitable Pedagogy is not a science closed but multidisciplinary, that still is delimiting its object of study to give answer to those situations that, in the conjunction of the sanitary and educative scopes, the society is demanding, becoming equally necessary programs of attention to the convalescent boy, that is to say, conceiving the convalecencia in the address like an prolongation of the period of hospitalization. The Hospitable Pedagogy considers in addition like a ramification to the Special Education, inasmuch as it takes care of specific form of the children and children with health problems, after all of children and children with special educative needs. Nevertheless, the attention cannot be considered solely like fundamental and exclusive task of the Hospitable Pedagogy of hospitalized boy and his family. The intention of the Hospitable Pedagogy goes further on, including an ample panorama much more within which more schooling is an element, next to many others, that comprise of the evolution and global improvement of the human being. Therefore, the Hospitable Pedagogy is beyond the medicine and beyond Sciences of the Education, there where the dignity and the solidarity of the ill-hospitalized boy and his familiar context protest, it has more to do with the health and the life that with the instruction and the training: without resigning to the specific contents of the education, it goes beyond this one. The Hospitable Pedagogy is the school in the hospital, but also playful and the attention to the families of the hospitalized children.

At the moment, a specific formation for these professionals does not exist, when the demand is very strong (Lizasoin, 2006). The paper that carries out the school in the hospital is compensatory. The attempt of normalization is fundamental from the life way of the boy. The hospitable pedagogy is socializing, and for that reason the recreational activities are also important that they are possible to be organized in a hospital, from a painting contest to a magazine of plant written by the children.
